Liability law concerns the rules that apply for the determination of damage and liability of natural persons, legal entities or government bodies due to an unlawful act or another cause.
Fortunately, the Netherlands has not yet seen American-style scenes, but the impact of liability in our society has still increased sharply. There are many imaginable situations in which you, as an entrepreneur, will be liable yourself, for instance as a result of default, mismanagement or failure to comply with agreements. But as an entrepreneur, you can also be held liable for actions of your staff or people that you have deployed, hired on a temporary basis or of companies that perform work on your instructions. People are too often insufficiently aware of the risks that exist or deal too casually with these. The Guido de Wit law firm can define these risks for you with care and advise and act on them. If there is already a question of liability, we can provide you with highly expert guidance in order to settle the matter in the best possible way, including if this involves damages that you wish to recover.
